It’s a known fact that Auckland is a city that loves dumplings and there is no shortage of spots to fill an afternoon craving or a late-night snack. So, when it comes to finding the ultimate plate of those steaming little morsels, look no further. We are here to guide you through Newmarket’s top spots to indulge in these mouth-watering delights.
BaiFu Dumplings is a hidden gem that is not to be missed. Whether you’re a Newmarket local or discovering this tasty little spot for the first time, BaiFu dumplings is a must-visit for a quick bite to eat.
475 Khyber Pass Road
Pearl Garden is an Auckland institution, one of Newmarket’s most famous and well-frequented spots known for their bustling Yum Cha. The much-loved eatery serves up all of the classics when it comes to Chinese cuisine, but their dumplings are worth their very own mention. Fresh, steaming little delights packed with flavour. Some of our favourites include the spinach and prawn, pork and cashew and the duck and mushroom. We suggest grabbing your friends and heading to Sunday Yum Cha to get the full Pearl Garden experience.
Level 1, 1 Teed Street
The Candy Shop
Although The Candy Shop is best known for their Mushrooms and Korean Style Pancake, it’s their dumplings that we are here for. Although their menu changes regularly, dumplings are a staple amongst this Korean fusion offering. Their Prawn Dumpling Soup is a sure-fire way to warm up your lunchtime, with delicious broth, delicate prawn dumplings, fish balls and tasty vegetables.
2-8 Osborne Lane
Don’t be fooled by the name, TianFu Noodles also serve up a delicious range of dumplings in soup. Their range of hearty flavours are some of our favourites for a quick lunchtime bite or to fill that late-night craving. We highly recommend the dumplings in spicy and sour soup.
477 Khyber Pass Road
Snacking on the go doesn’t mean just grabbing a sandwich and heading back to office – the opportunities are endless when it comes to a hearty feed of dumplings! We suggest making a quick visit to Otto Woo on the corner of Remuera Road and Nuffield Street when you are looking to satisfy your next lunchtime craving. Otto Woo offers a range of fresh Asian Fusion food and we can’t get enough of their prawn dumplings as a little afternoon snack, but if you’re wanting something a little more, give the chicken dumpling soup a go.
Corner of Remuera Road & Nuffield Street
White + Wong’s Newmarket
Newmarket’s latest rooftop dining outposts take on ‘east meets west’ cuisine fuses street food flavours from China, Hong Kong, Vietnam, Malaysia and Thailand, resulting in the most delicious dumplings you might have ever tasted. Try our personal favourite – the Prawn & Coriander Crystal Skin Dumplings. They’re the perfect ratio of prawn to coriander and are a ‘melt-in-your-mouth’ starter prior to a delectable Asian fusion feast.
